Video: Kal Penn Takes a Jab at Clint Eastwood Over His Speech to Empty Chair


The 'Harold and Kumar' actor reminds people of the good things President Barack Obama has done, adding, 'Thank you, invisible man in the chair, for that.'

Kal Penn turned the table on Clint Eastwood at a Democratic National Convention in North Carolina recently. The "Harold & Kumar" star ripped the "Gran Torino" director for the latter's speech to an empty seat at the Republican National Convention.

"I've worked on a lot of fun movies, but my favorite job was having a boss who gave the order to take out bin Laden, and who's cool with all of us getting gay-married. Thank you, invisible man in the chair, for that," he said to thundering claps and cheers from the crowd.

Academy Award-winning Eastwood sent tongues wagging last August 30 when he criticized Barack Obama by interviewing an empty chair. In response, Mr. President posted a picture of him sitting on a chair with "The President" nameplate. "This seat's taken," he wrote.

"One thing about being president or running for president - if you're easily offended, you should probably choose another profession," Obama later said in his own campaign rally, before singing praise to Eastwood, "I think the last few movies that he's made have been terrific."
